I'll be stationed at the window with southern exposure the next few days when the sub-zero stuff hits. Your goldfinch photo is stunning! Your post reminds me to get my son going on woodworking. It's time. Beautiful peek into your life as always!

Thanks, you two! My photos have more words than what I can translate through the keyboard these days. Merry Christmas!

Kimberlee, I hope you & I tie for first place in some sort of "most relaxed" bloggers contest! I enjoy seeing your occasional updates and am edified to know you are still reading Pinewood Castle and even taking the trouble to leave a comment. You made my day!

Thank you, Jessica! I (and several friends) were inspired by your AIP post. I appreciate all the time that post must have taken as well as the self-discipline to follow a restricted diet for so long. Blessings on your year!

Wishing you the best for the new school year! We enrolled in MODG last year and it took much off my shoulders. This year I have K, 3rd, 7th, 8th, and 10th. A full plate. Beautiful photos as always! I hope we get monarchs here in MN - the idea to keep I-35 un-mowed should help!
